Fresh off of being inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, Ice Cube is about to take over Coachella on April 16. The NWA icon is coming straight out of Compton to rock the stage and HollywoodLife.com wants you to see his epic set! Click to watch.
It’s a good day for Ice Cube fans, because the 46-year old rapper is ready to tear it up at Coachella. While Cube could rule the music festival by himself, the Barbershop 3 stars says he has some tricks up his sleeve. Does this mean a N.W.A. reunion?
The fans gathered in Indio, California will be eager to see if anyone joins Ice Cube for his April 16 performance at the main Coachella Stage. Cube is set to set the desert on fire at 9:05 PM PST (that’s 12:05 AM for East Coasters.) Make sure your festival fashion is on point before catching what could be the best performance in the entire festival.
“I’ve got a few trick sup my sleeves,” Cube said when talking about his Coachella set, per Rolling Stone. “I’m going to try to bring the members of N.W.A together. Give everybody a little history lesson on Ice Cube and N.W.A, West Side Connection – everything I’ve been doing over the years.”
Here’s hoping that Dr. Dre, 51, MC Ren, 46, DJ Yella, 48, jump on stage during the show. It would be an awesome way to celebrate the group’s recent induction into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame. Though, who could step in for the late Easy-E? Could Eminem, 43, step in and spit some rhymes? Maybe one of Compton’s native sons, Kendrick Lamar, 28, will pick up the mic?
One person not watching this set will be Gene Simmons, 66. The KISS bassist and rock and roll icon got into a war of words with Ice Cube over a rap group being inducted into a “rock and roll” Hall of fame. “Respectfully, let me know when Jimmy Hendrix gets into the hip hop hall of fame,” Gene tweeted, with Cube firing back with that “rock and roll is…a spirit that’s been going on since the blues, jazz…and yes, hip-hop.”
If Kendrick can’t step in for Easy E, maybe they’ll have the late rapper come back from the dead as a hologram? After all, that’s what happened when Tupac Shakur performed with Snoop Dogg, 44, and Dre in 2012. Will Coachella come straight out of Compton with an NWA reunion? There’s only one way to find out.
